Session details forthcoming. 

Burke Hendrix is a professor of Political Science at the University of Oregon. Burke Hendrix’s research and teaching focus on normative political theory, indigenous politics, global justice, and the history of political thought. He is especially interested in theories of political authority, state territoriality, historical injustice, and the ethics of political action.  Current research evaluates normative questions surrounding the land rights, sovereignty, and political choices of indigenous peoples within the United States, Canada, and other countries.  He is the author of two books, Ownership, Authority, and Self-Determination: Moral Principles and Indigenous Rights Claims (2008) and Strategies of Justice: Aboriginal Peoples, Persistent Injustice, and the Ethics of Political Action (2019), as well as articles on related topics, and is currently completing a book on non-ideal theory and indigenous politics.  He also has interests in just war theory, and has taught courses on this topic along with the Enlightenment, global ethics, liberalism, conservatism, and basic normative methodologies. He has additional teaching interests in comparative political thought, especially that of classical Chinese and Indian thinkers including the legalist philosophies of Han Fei and Kautilya.
